    High Down Cottage represents a charming semi-detached traditional home which provides versatile and well presented accommodation, having been enlarged and significantly improved by the current vendor. The cottage is set back from the road which leads to the heart of the village and enjoys a large plot with established lawned gardens, backing onto farmland and buildings.

    In August 2020, planning permission was granted for the creation of a separate 3 bedroom detached residential dwelling together with driveway/parking within the garden curtilage and may attract those seeking dual occupancy or development/income potential. It is thought, that this consent clearly allows a vehicular access to provide off road parking to benefit the property, with perhaps adaptability for those seeking a home garden office, annexe or workshop (subject to any further planning amendments that may be required).

    The accommodation briefly comprises: on the ground floor, entrance porch, welcoming sitting room with inglenook style fireplace containing a woodburning stove, bedroom 3/study, kitchen area, inner hall, shower room and a utility/secondary kitchen space.

    Leading off this room is a superb living space with further woodburning stove, Velux windows and glazed patio doors to the garden. The first floor provides two good sized double bedrooms and a bathroom.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please see the enclosed floorplan and refer to the Virtual Tour.


    The property is approached from the village lane via a private gated pedestrian entrance. This opens onto the gardens which predominately adjoin the front and side of the property with a small area to the rear and laid mainly to lawn with mature shrubs, a variety of fruit trees and raised beds. The planning permission allows for the creation of a vehicular access and off road parking which would be located at the end of the garden. Further details are available upon request.


    High Bickington itself enjoys an excellent and well stocked village shop, a post office, doctors’ surgery, two public houses, pre/primary school, a historic church, chapel, community centre & woodland together with a playing fields offering cricket and football clubs. Whilst rurally situated, High Bickington provides thriving community with easy access.
